Which Song Best Represents Your Job?

When contractor solutions provider Entity Solutions asked 375 independent contractors which song best represented their career, the most popular option was 'I Will Survive' (35%) by Gloria Gaynor, closely followed by 'What A Wonderful World' by Louis Armstrong (29%). Which track best represents your job?

For reference purposes, the other popular choices were 'We Are The Champions' by Queen (19%), 'Born This Way' by Lady GaGa (10%0, 'Trapped' by 2Pac (4%) and 'Tragedy' by the Bee Gees (3%). We were disappointed that neither 'The Lazy Song' by Bruno Mars or 'Closer' by 'Nine Inch Nails' featured, but it's open slather here. Sum up your job in a comment in the comments.


    did anyone suggest the song that never ends.

    Sorry if it gets suck in your head too

      Or ManahManah by the Muppets?

    My job is that silent song organised by Thom Yorke and featuring all these other famous musicians.
    It's about 3 minutes of nothing, available on the iTunes store for 99c.

    My day is 8 hours of this song.

    It would have to be BTO "Takin' Care of Business". Except that I only wish I could work at nothing all day.

    The Lonely Island - Like a Boss

    I'm surprised not to see "Under Pressure" by Queen.

    I can't think of anything that suits my job, so I'll just suggest "Still Alive"

    Daft Punk - Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

    Weird Al Yankovic - Wight and Nerdy

    Fuck You,....
    No seriously, you know, by Lily allen!
    Heh, sorry I couldn't resist! #]

    Birth School Work Death - The Godfathers

    Breakout - Foo Fighters. Especially the bit where he loses his mind.

    I don't really see how Closer fits here, not too sure I'd want to work at a workplace where that represents it.

    Over and Over by Hot Chip is certainly the theme for consultant meetings.

    over and over and over and over and over
    like a monkey with a miniature cymbal
    the joy of repetition really is in you
    under and under and under and under and under
    the smell of repetition really is on you
    and when i feel this way i really am with you

    U2 - Acrobat. It's got a great line in it:

    "So don't let the bastards grind you down"

    "I don't like Mondays"

    .. er

    .. but without the shooting!

    I work in government IT. James 'Born of Frustration' came straight to mind.

    I too was going to say "I Don't like Mondays" as per Ammusionist...
    So instead I'll offer "Shaddup You Face" Joe Dolce

    Frank Sinatra - My Way

    "Every Day Is Exactly The Same" by Nine Inch Nails

    job: technician
    song: science is fun -portal 2

    Well I'm an Air Traffic Controller so the Offspring's Keep'em Separated is probably the logical choice - although I don't think they were talking about aircraft!!

    I'm unemployed & stuck in a town where there's bugger all chance of employment so I guess the only song that fits for me is Kim Jonh Il's "I'm So Ronery"

    Job Title: PI & Paralegal

    "Dog the Bounty Hunter" by Ozzy Osbourne

    Two steps forward, three steps back
